    They are selling a D70 kit over at costco (comes with body, lens, 256 memory card yadda yadda) for 769.99$

    Tell me why I shouldn't buy it...besides the fact that its only 6 megapixels

    That is a smoking deal if it's the Nikon kit lens.

    There is no reason why you shouldn't buy it.

    no reason why you shouldn't and 6 megapixels is more than enough for just about everything.

    yeah... if you don't know the differences, then that's why :)

    Why are you getting a dSLR in the first place if you have no idea about them?

    Better do your research on the difference bewteen the D70 and D50 before you decide. The D70/D70s is worth every extra penny (to me at least).

    Also get the AF-S 18-70mm D70/D70s kit lens, that is a much better lens and got SWM for ultra quiet and fast focusing.
